  • 1 T. coconut oil
  • 1 14oz. can of quartered artichokes {drained}
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • salt & pepper

  6. Now, back to the peppers. Remove the outside skin {just use a knife to gently scrap off the charred part of the skin} and julienne.
  7. In a large bowl add chicken sausage, roasted red pepper, quartered artichoke hearts, reserved cooking liquid, and pasta.
  8. Toss all ingredients.
  9. Top with 4 oz. of softened crumbled goat cheese, 1 T. olive oil, salt & pepper. Bon Appetite! 🙂
